Augite and Adamite Formula

Augite and Adamite Chemical Properties gives us information about the mineral's chemical composition. A mineral is basically composed of various elements in varied proportions. These elements define how the mineral will behave when exposed to different conditions. These chemical properties also depend on the way the mineral atoms are bound in the mineral's crystal structure. On the basis of crystallography of minerals a chemical formula is designed for better interpretation of its structure. Augite and Adamite Formula are of two types chemical and empirical. Formula of Augite is (Ca,Na)(Mg,Fe,Al,Ti)(Si,Al)2O6 and Adamite is Zn2(AsO4)(OH) . The molecular weight of Augite is 236.35 and Adamite is 286.71. The Atomic Structure of Augite properties of minerals gives us further information about a minerals atomic structure.
